Fall. An offering.
Fall ushers in a beautiful contrast to the free-spirited and chaotic nature of summer. A balancing of energies, a time to reset, slow down, seek connection and stability.
Things we love about fall :
A much-needed routine reset. Focused, and short to-do lists, daily time to paint, write, work, move, plan. As much as I love the free-spirit and chaos that summer brings, my brain and body are always ready to return to the structure + simplicity of a well-planned fall season.
Adjusting our rhythms to the sun. Rising and resting with the sun, a welcome respite from the extended hours of summer. Quiet, darker mornings bring a time for peaceful meditation before the world wakes. A slow ease into creativity, painting and writing in the morning - my favorite time for creating. A mid-day break to workout, connect with a friend or art group. Evening walks take an unwinding pace.

A chance to explore at home, and cozy our nests just a bit. Blankets rescued from storage, pillow covers changed, books + art rotated to bring a bit more fall color into our space. This year, in particular, we're finding inspiration in nature - bringing the outdoors in - think pampas grass, plants + fall florals sprinkled throughout, and warm autumnal colors.
Getting grounded. The slightly slower pace of fall encourages mindfulness and invites reflection. As the light + leaves change, it's a beautiful time to connect inward and slow down. Meditation, gratitude journals, nature walks - whatever it is for you, make time to take care of your roots.
Creative rituals. Nature's palette and change brings fresh inspiration and beauty to the forefront. Whether it's palette play in fall-inspired color combinations, capturing the soft light of slower fall mornings, or collecting leaves to appreciate the change happening around us - take a moment this season to get creative.
Embracing the simplicity and stillness of fall is a much-needed transition from the liveliness and adventure of summer. A time to reflect, create, connect and explore - beauty in the everyday around us.
